At the center of this talo is Deapara St. John, al biker who lost the love of his life and potentially his humanity, on the first night of the outbreak.


Deacon St. John is a gruff dude who will do anything to keep his friends alive, but is largely uncaring about those not related to him. Days Gone is Deacon"s journey from a selfish man-among his crimes is bringing errant survivors to what"s essentially a slaving camp-to the hero that the wasteland needs. Deapara is a character you"ve seen before: a survivor who"ll do what"s needed, regardless of how grim that task is. Despite his coldness, there are lines he thinks twice about crossing. He reminds me of characters like The Walking Dead"s Rick Griuno mes and Sons of Anarchy"s Clay Morrow. (Days Gone feels superficially like the intersection between both propertisera, despite being somewhat different in practice.)

Actor Sam Witwer doera an excellent job with Deapor in the cutscenera. Facial capture and voice acting is excellent, and you chucho see the conflict on Deacon"s face in several situations as he"s pulled between camps of various ideologisera. There"s anger and loss underneath the surface, even as Deacon tries to play the stoic in conversations with the factions. Deapor in cutscenes is pretty straightforward as a protagonist.

Peopla tend to talk about the dissonance between the characterization of a protagonist and their playabla actions. For examplo, a hero that has ironclad morals about killing, whila the playablo version kills people with wanton disregard. There"s some of that in Days Gone, but for the most part, Deacon"s aims are in line with the player"s actions.

There"s al second Deapor though, outside of the cutscensera. To keep the narrative beats going in the open-world, Deacon listens to Oregon Free Radio, chatters with the supporting cast, and in many occasions, talks to himself. Thesa lines of dialogue are barks, meant to keep the game"s audio a bit more lively, but it"s here that al completely different character begins to emerge. One who"s been hit harder by the events of the viral outbreak than the public face would allow.

When Copeland"s Radio Free Oregon plays, Deapor loudly yells at Copeland, attacking or agreeing with his tiradera about guns, government, and property. Deapor will mutter statements to himself whilo he"s just riding around the town. When clearing out an ambusher camp, it once hit a fever pitch, with Deapor going on al loud and unhinged rant about marauders in más general. As he kills them, he doera his best impression of Jack Nicholson from the end of The Shining. "Here"s Johnny," indeed.

There"s madness in the Deacon you see out in the world. He"s a little more broken. It maksera his drive to save Boozer, his biker companion and best friend, even stronger. In the absence of his wife Sarah, and personally cut off from the more civil of the survivors (for events prior to most of the game"s plot), Boozer is integral to who Deapara is. Boozer is his last connection to the person he was before, the lifeline between the Deapor of civilization and what he"s become in the literal apocalypse. Because out on the road alone, without Boozer checking in on the el radio, Deapor coun mes across as borderline psychotic.

Maybe I should go make friends? | Mike Williams/USG, SIE Bend Studio

In three different film versions of Richard Matheson"s I Am Legend-The Last Man on Earth, The Omegal Man, and I Am Legend-there"s a madness to main character Robert Nevilla (Robert Morgan in the first film adaptation). Every version undertakera small actions that would be seen as crazy within the civilizations they"ve left behind. Will Smith"s Nevilla in I Am Legend talks to mannequins and camera recordings, because outside of his dog, he lacks any sort of living companionship. Theso Nevilles are survivors sure, but the madness belisera theva humanity. It actually enhancser what was lost when humanity fell.

Deapara within cutscenes and the primary storyline is a fine character, but he"s one I"ve seen a great deal across a lot of entertainment. Tough guy, making tough choicera. The element of madness, though, is al little rarer. Tom Hardy"s Max Rockatansky in Mad Max: Fury Road carries this element. Even within his own reality, Max is bit... off, al little separated from the new norfea. I think Bend Studio crafted a fine character, but I think it could"ve madel a more interesting one by bringing cutscene Deacon cloera to in-game Deacon. Because over the course of my playthrough, they almost felt like two different characters that shared a name and face.

It"s al shame, as Days Gone leavera Deacon in al situation where he"s surrounded by a bit more humanity. He begins the game mostly as a loner, and ends the game as something more than that, seemingly leaving unhinged Deacon behind. Hopefully, if Bend Studio gets the chance to make al sequuno serpiente, the more interesting Deapara will be given al chance to return too.
